JLBC Program Procedures


JLBC Program Procedures

JLBC Nutrition

JLBC Cadets, we provide one healthy snack for any child who attends our After School Program. Additional snacks can be brought with a child, but they must be nut and peanut-free due to allergies.

Life-Threatening Allergies (Anaphylaxis)

JLBC strives to protect the people in our center who have life-threatening allergies by reducing as much as possible exposure to their known allergens.

Any parent/guardian of a child with a life-threatening injury is responsible for providing JLBC with detailed information about their child’s known allergens, signs and symptoms of an allergic response, and the steps to take in an emergency before their child starts care. It is also imperative that parent’s/guardians inform JLBC staff anytime there is a change in a child’s allergies.
